Natural History Museum - Review
The history of mankind and the history of life on Earth generally interest everyone. Nobody has stayed aloof from the question of the evolution of life on earth. Everybody while has thought about how was the world before his/ her birth. Isn’t it?
The Natural History Museum of Geneva is a place that can quench the thirst of anyone who wants to know more. Once the visitor is inside the museum, the place engulfs him in its serenity and beauty. The dioramas are so real to look at that it seems the live animals and birds are there to welcome the visitors. All possible species are gathered under one roof to provide the travellers with information about the natural habitat of mother Earth. The environment is set with realistic sounds of the chirping birds and calls of wild animals and rustling of the dry leaves that make a person feel as though they are in a forest.
By the time the visitor gets his eyes off the animal kingdom, he gets soaked into the world of minerals and fossils. Both terrestrial and non terrestrial minerals along with the precious stones create a glittering effect in the visitor’s mind. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Geneva itinerary 1 day.

Natural History Museum, Geneva Reviews
Free to the public. We went on a weekday and it was virtually empty. Every floor is dedicated to a different type of animals. It's a great way to spend a few hours of free entertainment.
Intersting natural history museum, great for children. All museums in Geneva are free on the first Sunday of the month so great value. Easy to find by bus.
The museum is mostly in French, I counted about 6 displays with English translations. Nonetheless, it has an amazing collection of specimans from the local area and abroad. We also enjoyed a very detailed discussion of the pros and cons of taxidermy from a conservation stand point.
Great exhibits including birds, bugs, fish, minerals, and much more. Luminescent minerals under different lights were fascinating to see. A large number of dioramas and well-labeled displays made for an interesting, entertaining, and educational visit. Highly recommended!
Great place for a visit with kids or for couples... it is free but I would encorage donnations. I would recommend !
